Yeah, not sure why you'd want to though! 8)

Why did you buy a GT430? What is the make/model of the psu? Did you just buy these parts or are they making the trip over from a prior build? I only suggested the V3 Black since it's less than half the price of the Apex, but twice the case.

i bought the power supply, case and video card on ebay all new for 60 dollars total and why i bought the card was because it was just a really cheap one to throw in there until i save the money for a better one. The psu probly isnt so good but here it is ....Kentek Black Single 120mm Fan 650 Watt ATX Form Factor Power Supply. Also what would you recommend as far as a full size motherboard or should i just stick with the micro?

I see...pinching pennies. Okay, just make sure you upgrade that Kentek when you get a real (err, I mean new) GPU. Your call on the motherboard size, but for the money and stability, it's tough to beat a Asrock Pro4 or Pro4-M. Your best move would be to buy it and a i5 3570k for $250 or i3 3225 for $180 + tax out the door at MicroCenter.
